Agreeing to a long-standing demand of developers for the real estate sector in West Bengal, in its recent budget, the state government decided to reduce stamp duty and curb circle rates. With this new development, the apartment complex has seen an upsurge but there is more to this. Let’s see what’s in store for homebuyers-

The positive impact of Government subsidies on apartment complexes

With a 2% reduction for registration of deeds coupled with a cut of 10% in circle rate, the latest move by the Bengal Government has encouraged real estate developers in Kolkata to launch new projects for apartment complex and boost fresh investments in the sector.  Welcoming the decision, realtors are looking forward to investment in the city from some of the industry’s key players. Furthermore, the new move will help in creating jobs and also help in reviving the state economy.  With the latest subsidies from the government, it is an exciting time for homebuyers as it could lead to savings of Rs 50,000 to over Rs 2 lakh, depending upon the value of the property they are seeking.   

Let’s not forget the positive impact of the limited-period stamp duty cut in Maharashtra on the real estate markets of MMR and Pune. Housing sales surged in spite of the crippling effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Real estate India witnessed severe economic repercussions in the months of April and May owing to the deadly second wave of COVID-19, however signs of recovery began to surface in June with overall pan-India price growth of 1.7% during the quarter. 

Based on a real estate survey,  57% of buyers prefer ready-to-move-in apartment complexes while 27% are interested in resale flats in Kolkata. Even millennials who are used to the rental lifestyle, prefer buying a home in the pandemic era. Until last year, the 25-40 demographic constituted about 49%, however this percentage has escalated to an extraordinary 63%.

There is also a substantial increase in the homebuyers’ budget. 58% of buyers plan to purchase a flat in Kolkata within ₹60 lakh while 13% want to buy an apartment complex within ₹60 lakh to ₹80 lakh, the survey reveals. On the other hand, around 19% of respondents were interested in buying a property within the budget of ₹80 lakh to ₹1 crore. Furthermore, last year only 10% contributed to that budget bracket. At least 11% of respondents are looking to purchase a property over ₹1 crore, a figure that is also up from last year’s 7%.

3 BHK Apartment Complexes are preferred

Notable demand was noticed in the 3bhk apartment complex in Kolkata. With the newfangled work-from-home policies, homebuyers preferred an upgrade with the need of an extra room for the home-office requirement.

Furthermore, eight key real estate markets in India- Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), the National Capital Region and Pune witnessed the highest demand in the affordable housing segment i.e. apartment complexes valued up to Rs. 45 lakh. The demand is mainly the result of huge unsold inventory. Moreover, with the government-linked subsidy schemes, affordable housing and mid-price houses in Kolkata are expected to gain better demand.
